Forum: GratefulDead Subject: What if the Grateful Dead were to license their songs for commercials...

There was a recent news story where Yoko Ono "sold out" a rare Lennon song to JC Penny for holiday TV commecials. It made me think, what if the Dead started selling out their songs, what commercials would they be in?

How about Stella Blue for a toothpaste commercial:

Brush off those rusty teeth just one more time, gonna let 'em shine....SHINE!
